Green was an Evangelist. His approach was a mixture of personality, popular appeal and frank speaking. He set out to appeal to as many Christians as possible and succeeded remarkably. If he is an orthodox Anglican, then he must have diluted his creed to appeal to all creeds. The merits of this approach can be questioned, but then it is also possible to ask—what is an orthodox Anglican? It is very difficult to define Anglicanism itself and the approach may have necessitated some dilution but did not appear to need compromise or surrender. He avoided questions any more basic than the divinity of Christ, the precepts of Charity and the importance of Common Sense.
